The French Quarter T-shirt shop fiasco that led to 17 citations and an uproar that some of the tourist-baiting shops were operating illegally, isn't turning out to be the crackdown it started out as. The Board of Zoning Adjustments upheld only three of the cases and "ruled that the businesses had been operating as T-shirt shops for well over 10 years, and in some cases for decades, with full knowledge of the city and therefore should be grandfathered in."
